ive been smoking weed ever since i tried it for the first time in 8th grade. sure, some people will say its harmless, that its not addictive. but for me, ive been caught up too many times with it and none of the times ive used it had a positive impact on my life. i dont like the sense of losing touch with reality (at times i do as a way of escaping from my problems). i cant escape, i need to deal with it all in a healthy manner. i just need help and encouragement to stop. i feel like ill say this now but will continue to do it later, as if i forgot the promise i made to myself. someone please help me. i dont think i can do this on my own.
